Global ETF launches from 8th to 15th December, 2022


A final burst of launches for the year saw Frankfurt-based index provider Solactive work with Northern Trust Asset Management to produce two global bond ESG ETFs, and with Korea’s Shinhan Asset Management to launch the Shinhan SOL US TOP5 40 Blended ETF.

HANetf listed two of its ETPs on the Bolsa Mexicana de Valores, RMAU and CO2, and DWS expanded its Xtrackers S&P 500 offering with new ESG ETFs. PGIM Investments has come back into the market again, launching three actively managed ETFs — the PGIM Jennison Focused Growth ETF (PJFG), the PGIM Jennison Focused Value ETF (PJFV) and the PGIM Portfolio Ballast ETF (PBL). The firm writes that with these launches it has expanded its line-up of active ETFs to eight funds.

Dimensional Fund Advisors also added to their substantial ETF offering this week with the launch of US Large Cap Value and Global Real Estate ETFs. BlackRock launched the iShares Metaverse UCITS ETF and TrueMark & Eagle Global Advisors launched the TrueShares Eagle Global Renewable Energy ETF.

We also had a mutual fund to ETF conversion story this week, with Kovitz Investment Group Partners, an independently-managed investment advisory and value-oriented wealth management firm based in Chicago, announcing the launch of a new actively managed ETF, Kovitz Core Equity ETF (NYSE Arca: EQTY).

As part of the launch, Kovitz converted its existing mutual funds – Green Owl Intrinsic Value Fund (GOWLX) and Marathon Value Portfolio (MVPFX) – into the new ETF along with over USD500 million of assets from separately managed accounts.
